Introduce young readers to history through the stories of both real and fictionalized people. By focusing on a single important episode that describes a historical event, these books engage readers' interests and imaginations. Written in a story format, each account relates events that really happened, often followed by a brief summary of the historical event to further explain the significance it had on history. In this inspiring and relevant book, discover how The Pledge of Allegiance has become one of the most enduring symbols of America's pride. In 1888, a children's magazine announced that a new holiday--Columbus Day--would begin in 1892, on which the American flag would be raised to celebrate the founding of America. As the flag was raised, children would say something to honor it. What resulted was a simple one-line poem that become known as The Pledge of Allegiance. After more than a hundred year, the poem has changed very little, and it is still recited in classrooms across America.
